Guest Speaker : Edina Mehovic

Edina Mehovic from RI headquarters in Chicago who was kind enough to review what the foundation was all about how her life has been impacted through support from the only recognized 4 star charity…. The Rotary Foundation.

Pretty timely given the impact that COVID has had globally…certainly as our club now meets virtually and our fellowship is more along the lines of virtual hugs than physical how are able to contribute is important. As we all know the funds we contribute allow us to qualify and receive matching grants from the district, RI and in some cases other agencies like the Gov’t of Canada. 

As an FYI..our club over its tenure has contributed $180,101 US!

 That was exactly how we were able to leverage a 12,500 USD club contribution to the prevention and screening program in Ecuador. Our 12,500 in addition contributions from Oro Valley, Calgary, Sedro Woolley Rotary Clubs and the Gov’t of Canada turned into 178,580 USD..a significant amount that is now making a difference in 2 key health issues in Ecuador. It is also a significant contributor to our Belize project headed up by Glen and Al.

Times are indeed challenging…but as we are not currently contributing for a weekly breakfast if you are able why not contribute directly via myrotary.org? That way we can stay the course for “every Rotarian every year” (100 usd goal/person per year), gain Paul Harris recognition and contribute to any number of directed areas within Rotary ..perfect trifecta.

To check it out go to:  my.rotary.org  (sign in)…go to either “Profile” or “Donate”



In the profile area…under your name and to the right click on “Donor Self Service”

If you want to set up a recurring transaction, simply hit the “ADD button” ..that will take you to 

A “Choose what you would like to support page”…have a recce / explore and pick what works for you….

“Enrollment Details”….followed by Personal Information & Payment Details…a great way to bleed your bank account…AND feel good about it!

SUBMIT…and you are done…but not COOKED..-😊

Great to have 31 at our Virtual meeting on Wednesday.....Great turnout...

The results are in... 
You, our players and sponsors, raised a whopping $12,470.00 for the Share Food Bank in the month of April!!! 
This amount is truly hard to believe! The Executive Team thanks each and every one of you for giving in this monumental way. We crushed our original goal of $2,500 by adding another $10,000 to it!!!!
The power of generosity by this group is truly something special and will be felt by those in need in our community right away.
Well done boys! Above and beyond expectations and this is appreciated more than you know.
Humbled by all of this, many thanks...
Your PMOHA Executive Team
From Paul:
I wanted to thank the club for the lovely gift and card with quotes. 
Dear Friends and Fellow Rotarians
Thank you so much for all your support during what has been a challenging time.  My mom, in the space of 28 hours, decided to move on to the next place, and we all hope that it is far better than the world of Alzheimer’s she left behind.  One dad and two siblings are also Rotarians, and they received support from their clubs as well – we are a global family.
It has been a scramble to deal with the grief and the practical actions that needed to be taken, but I believe my head is now above water, and I look forward to seeing you at this Wednesday’s meeting.
Yours in Rotary
Gayle & Linda
